The Monumental Complex of Saint Sophia, located in Piazza Abate Conforti a few meters from the Cathedral, was built at the end of the 10th century as the first convent of the Benedictine Order dedicated to the Saint, from whom it takes its name. Later, it was entrusted first to the Jesuit fathers (to whom it remained until 1778) and then to the Carmelites. In 1807 it was designated as a civil court and later as a state school. After a long period of neglect it has been renovated and it is currently used as venue for organizing events.

The Church of Our Lady of Sorrows has a space with 300 seats.
